Christmas is a time for remembrance and celebration and The Friends of the Wisdom Hospice (FOWH) do both at their annual Lights for Love services in Rochester, Sittingbourne and Minster.
Every year, in December, the FOWH Lights for Love Appeal provides a wonderful opportunity to come together and remember loved ones. It’s a chance to reflect and celebrate time spent together, leave a dedication to your loved one and make a donation to support the hospice. The events focus on remembrance, with readings, hymns, carols and refreshments afterwards.
Christmas trees will be illuminated by hundreds of tiny white lights at three separate venues. Each light will symbolise the love for someone special, and stars will be available that can be personalised and hung on the trees.
Many people come because they were supported by care from The Wisdom Hospice, but you don’t need to have any connection to the hospice to attend. Everyone, of any age, is welcome to join in.
Every dedication received will be included in their Book of Remembrance, which will be displayed at each service and also at the Hospice throughout the whole of December. A special card will be sent for you to keep.
Your donation will help The Wisdom Hospice to continue to care for future patients and their families, not just at Christmas but throughout the year.
The services take place at: Rochester Cathedral on Friday 2nd December at 5.25pm; Highsted Grammar School, Sittingbourne on Tuesday 6th December at 6pm; Minster Abbey on Thursday 8th December at 6pm.
